The Unbarred Project involves groups of students providing current prisoners with presentations on gaining employment upon leaving prison and help with calculating disclosing periods under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, hoping to prevent reoffending. The project currently has a permanent place in the rehabilitation schemes of HMP Whatton, HMP Sudbury, and HMP Ranby, along with visiting other prisons across England.

Volunteers also aid the prisoners in creating their CVs and preparing for integration back into the working world through interview workshops. The project is extremely unique and a fantastic opportunity for students from all disciplines to enjoy volunteering work exclusive to the Pro Bono Society at Nottingham.
